Press Release Regarding the Official Passport Holders and Visa Allowance for International Drivers

Within the framework of visa consultations with the Russian Federation, visa exemption was granted to official passport holders mutually. Visa exemption will be applied to the citizens of the Russian Federation by the Russian Federation. Citizens of Russian Federation who have service passport will also benefit from visa liberalization in their travels to our country.

Likewise, visa exemption on the basis of reciprocity will be provided to the drivers who make international transportation.

This mutual visa liberalization will be effective as of today.

Thus, the Agreement on visa exemption signed on 12 May 2010 was partially re-enacted as of 7 August 2019. We hope that the implementation of the provisions of this Agreement will begin.
